Don Kinsala of McHenry lost his wife in 2011, while she was waiting for a liver transplant. Pictured is Kinsala asking questions during the Transplant Support Group of McHenry County ten year anniversary meeting Saturday, March 15, 2014. "After Barbara died, I was about six months in the funk, and I came down and got with these people," said Kinsala. "The camaraderie kind of snapped me out of it a little bit. I felt that I could keep Barbara's legacy going by contributing to others."
